Business Case Pitfalls : Discussion Forum - March 11, 2020

11 Mar 2020
8:30am - 10:30am EDT
Event Details

It is becoming increasingly important for organizations to focus on investments that deliver true business value. Initiatives throughout the business are accepted or rejected based on the business value they deliver.


Organizations are constantly challenged in managing and realizing the projected benefits from their business cases. Whether deciding to move a service to an outside partner, between partners, or in-house, there are several key considerations that will drive the success of your business case.


How do you ensure your business case is accurate and thorough and is implemented as planned, delivered to time and budget and produce the expected benefits? How do you build a business case that anticipates unforeseen costs, activities and change requests that could dilute all the projected savings?


Join us for our business case pitfalls to avoid session where Barbara Beller, Associate Partner at Everest Group will share her experience working with fortune 500 companies, including best practices, common challenges organizations have in managing their business case, and mistakes to avoid when building your business case. This session will all feature a panel discussion featuring Amit Majithia - Vice President and Country Head at Wipro Limited Canada and Wade Frost - Senior Manager, Decision Support at Hydro One. The panel will be moderated by Joel Ramsey, Partner from Tory's
